Voting ballots are being mailed Jan. 25-27 for the Feb. 14 special election involving the Spokane Valley Fire Department.
The Spokane Valley Fire Department is placing before the voters on a proposition authorizing a maintenance and operations excess levy. If approved by the voters, the Spokane Valley Fire Department will be authorized to levy a maintenance and operations excess levy in the sum of $25,000,000 per year for four consecutive years beginning in 2023; this would amount to approximately $1.08 per $1,000 of true and assessed valuation, to be collected in each succeeding year (2024–2027). The levy will replace the current excess levy, which expires in 2023 and is in addition to the District’s regular tax levy. The District continues to experience increases in the cost of specialized equipment, personnel, training, and supplies required by various laws, codes, and standards. The levy will enable the District to maintain current staffing and service levels.
